with jim cooper and others on the democratic side of the island laid out a broad framework that would put revenues on the table and spending cuts. i don't want to say that we would say it's got to be this or that simply because we don't know what the proposals are going to be. what i do know is we face a fiscal cliff is right around the corner and the only way i think we are going to resolve these problems is by working together as i have done in the last 22 months. >> moderator: brad schneider how to chew come up with a 70/30 split? schneider: i don't think there's an absolute number but if you look at what we have had in past congress, congress has had a challenge and we have a ryan planned that not once but twice my opponent voted for that continues to give additional benefits and cuts to the most fortunate americans additional subsidies to large oil companies and companies shipping jobs overseas and to pay for that, it is asking seniors to take medicare and the medicare guarantee and turn it into a voucher which will cos

to respond. mr. casey you go first. casey: jim, thanks. if the supreme court were to make that decision would be a radical departure from where we've been over the generation. it would be a step in the wrong direction. we still have a way to go to make sure that the kind of discrimination which was in place for many generations is rectified that in justice is dealt with completely. we can have a big debate over how to do that but i don't think that we should take a radical departure from where we've been. and i hope, i hope that our supreme court wouldn't make a decision that could be based upon the ideology rather than what is best for the country to make sure that we are right on going wrong. >> moderator: mr. smith? smith: jim, when you ask that question, why was thinking i even with the great doctor, martin luther king, said in that speech of his that we should be judged not by the color of our skin that the content of our character. and i believe that we should try to end discrimination and bigotry wherever we find that. if we overturn that i don't think the federal government should be

[inaudible] [inaudible] [inaudible] >> well, look, it's a market that produced that growing inequality. these are inequalities of pretax income. the post-tax income is a little less unequal, but the truth is, you know, we provide lots of tax benefits for people at the top, too as well. so we are certainly not doing
